Specialized Field of Knowledge: Residential real estate sales and relocations. As the wife of a military member who has moved 11 times, I have first-hand knowledge of the trials, tribulations, emotions and logistics of moving. This experience allows me to specialize in working with transferees either selling and/or buying a home. I believe I can offer tremendous insight for families moving to the area with respect to amenities, schools, neighborhoods and points of interest for the different communities. In addition, I feel that my personal experience with 11 military moves as well as my extensive experience in the real estate industry gives me the ability to provide invaluable information regarding areas, construction, and insight to help a family make an informed decision.
